No matter where we are, we should just be plain old happy that we woke up in the morning & have 2 arms/legs, can see & hear, can walk, etc etc....

Oh, & no...the heat doesn't bother me...
Optimism at its finest! Ill make sure I think of you tomorrow when I wake up

I can't believe people living in this state during the summer months... I would rather have -500 F than 90s and 100s Heat Index with 100% humidity.
Do you own an oven?

LOL!! You do that!!! I'll make the pancakes...

It ain't optimism...it's old-fashioned common sense!! We can't control the weather, so if you hate heat, don't live in mainly hot areas. If you hate cold, don't live in mainly cold areas. There ain't no place with perfect weather 365!!! Life's too damn short!!!

But it's just human nature to wanna complain.

When I have a contractor or individual who does a good job for me, I'm right on the phone to (or in person with) their manager to let them know what a great employee they have. People will call right away for a negative experience, but few & far between will call for a positive one...

It was 94 degrees yesterday with a heat index of 108. Not pleasant. Today was the first day we got a BIG rain storm. Most of the time thus far it has just been dark clouds, lot of thunder and lightening, and just a drippy rain for a few minutes, which has done nothing to break the heat and humidity. I stay inside in the AC all the time.

No, I don't like it, but I am a cold weather person who isn't crazy about 75 degrees in January either. To each his own.

Up here in the Panhandle, awhile back, we had 2 full weeks of upper 90's and lower 100's which was pretty unusally high for late June . Its been about 90 f the past few weeks which feels cool compared to before. This is my first summer here in Florida --- what a way to get broken in !

I'll trade off July-Aug (which if I'm honest, I'm not overly fond of) for the dreadful winters up north.
Just like I tell people moving down here...do your outside activities in the morning or early evening and you won't be a "prisoner" in the A/C.

If you think you're held hostage by the weather ANYWHERE then you should live there.

Eh.. its better than up North in the winter but not great. We have not been to the theme parks in weeks even though we love them and have tickets for all of them. Wait-we did go on Manta the other night but got to Sea World at 4:30pm I am thinking San Diego or Hawaii next.

I hate july and august cause of the humidity. However, having lived in atlanta 40 years it is much worse there cause there is no ocean breeze. The humidity makes me very grouchy.

The last few nights it has been 75 degrees with low humidity so it is very nice. I have all my windows open now and am enjoying the breeze.

Depends where you live in Florida. The humidity in Gainesville/Ocala is probably the worst in the nation. I'm so glad to have moved away from it. It's been kind of bad up here in SC this month but at least it cools down at night.

Meh, what are you gonna do. Of course it's hot here in the summer. That's life in the South. There aren't too many places in this country (or the world for that matter) you can go that are perfect weather year round, except maybe San Diego? I've never been to Cali but I hear it's very mild year round.
